ADM has announced plans to construct a facility in Valencia, Spain that will expand its capabilities for microbiome solutions.
The facility will represent a five-fold increase in production capacity through ADM’s Biopolis, a microbial technologies provider based in Spain. The facility will produce probiotics and postbiotics for healthy weight management, skin health, immune health, gut health, oral health and fertility. It will be co-located with ADM’s flavour production facility in Valencia.
“Our new Valencia facility will feature leading-edge technology and dramatically enhance our ability to meet fast-growing demand for products and solutions from nature designed to target the microbiome and help improve metabolic health,” said Ian Pinner, chief strategy and innovation officer, and president of ADM’s Health & Wellness division.
“Consumers today are increasingly focusing on the foundational role food plays in supporting health and wellness, and our continued investment in these growth areas ensures that ADM is perfectly positioned to meet their needs.
“Consumers today are thinking about the things they eat and drink in entirely new ways. They expect food and beverages that are not only delicious, but support health and wellness, come from sustainable ingredients, and are produced by companies that share their values. The growth investments ADM has made in recent years put us in an unparalleled position to meet those changing needs. From alternative proteins, to our pantry of sustainable ingredients, flavors and colors, to our unequalled array of pre-, pro- and postbiotics, ADM is enriching lives around the globe.”
